Celebrity Big Brother 2015: Tila Tequila says sorry but were Channel 5 right to axe her?

Tia Tequila.

Ejected Celebrity Big Brother housemate Tila Tequila has said sorry for why she was booted out.

The US reality star lasted all of a day inside the house but there were calls for to be kicked out almost immediately over social postings she made back in 2013.

"Unfortunately, Channel 5 and Endemol did not know about the views and attitudes Tila had expressed in social media postings prior to her involvement in [the show]," Channel 5 said in a statement last night. "When they were brought to our attention, she was called to the Diary Room for a discussion with producers and was subsequently removed from the house.

"The views Tila had expressed, and permitted to remain uncorrected, are totally unacceptable and, accordingly, her continued involvement in the programme was untenable."

Now Tila has had her say after she was removed from the CBB house.

She issued a statement today which reads: "Back in 2013 I made a statement about Hitler not being a bad person, and immediately realised soon after that I had made a terrible mistake that would ultimately come back to haunt me," said Tila.

"During that time I had been suffering from severe depression, and drug addiction for many years prior to that. I also attempted to commit suicide in 2012, and overdosed on prescription pills. I wanted to die. I felt worthless, and unloved as that pain continued to grow causing me to further spiral out of control. Losing touch of myself, and reality.

"It was absolutely the lowest point I had ever reached in my life, and today I am truly sorry to everyone that I may have hurt along my self-destructive path. I have made many mistakes that I am definitely not proud about, but I am only a flawed human who is trying my best to be a better person than I was in the past.

"I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible, reckless, and selfish actions and I hope that everyone can forgive me for the pain that I may have caused. I want to be a good role model for my daughter because I don't want her to go through what I have had to endure."

Channel 5 seems to have been left in a sticky spot.

While some have called for Tila's axe, others have now complained it was unfair for her to be removed for comments made years ago and which really should've been known about before she entered.
